A career choice for compassionate people
If youâ€™re a caring and compassionate person, health and social care jobs can be very rewarding. From mental health awareness training to care assistant courses, counselling skills to our unique Step into Care programme. We offer a wide range of courses to help you get into and succeed in a heath or social care role.
Adult social care work covers a wide range of jobs. Care assistants and support workers support vulnerable adults in their day-to-day life. They often work in care homes, day centres or in a patient's own home. Personal assistants provide one on one support to someone who wants to manage their own support, often building a strong personal relationship with the person they care for. There are other roles in care homes, such as cleaning staff, working in the laundry or kitchens. All of these roles are essential for helping people to live dignified and comfortable lives.
Doing a counselling skills qualification isn't just about training to become a counsellor. Build counselling skills to help in work or volunteer roles in healthcare, education, HR or charities. Open up new work opportunities and find a job where you can make a real difference to peopleâ€™s lives. Counselling skills can help improve your communications skills, particularly listening skills, for any job role where you work with other people.
